The School of EEECS and Global Research Institute will be supporting a number of  Summer Research Internships over the Summer 2019 holiday period.  The aim of the Scheme is to identify and develop researchers of the future.  It is hoped that the internship will improve employability by developing experience and key skills such as problem solving, team working, and self-discipline.


The scheme is open to all EEECS Undergraduates (apart from students on the BIT degree pathway and students who are due to graduate this summer).

General Information

Each internship will last between 6-8 weeks and will pay a weekly stipend of £300 (for each week worked). Accommodation and travel costs are not provided under this scheme.

Students will be expected to complete this application form (click on link) and return it to Elaine Cranston by no later than 1st April 2019.

Successful applicants are asked to attend the Development Week activity "Scientific Research: A Widely Applicable Skill" by means of induction to the internship and opportunity to network with students with similar interests.

Further details on projects can be obtained by following the links below.

Please Note: The internship must take place during the Summer and successful applicants will be encouraged to negotiate start and finish dates with their supervisor. It is possible to split the internship to allow for summer holidays. Please note that the internships will be offered across three sites (the Ashby Building, ECIT and the Computer Science Building).
